”He is, therefore, an imposter and fraudster who wants to smear the image of others without recourse to evidence. We distance ourselves from the wild claims he is making and disassociate ourselves from those false claims.” They said.
”We want to state that the association doesn’t know him and if he thinks he has certain information he must as well head to court and the association will respond appropriately in the court of justice.”
The Union indicated that as a Registered Trade Union which does not deal with Directors as had been alleged by the alleged imposter.
”The Alliance is doing everything possible to enable Mr Michael Sitsofe Dzadey to answer serious questions in court for using the association’s name for impersonation.” They said.
The Genesis of Events
In a press release issued by the alleged Vice-chairman on Sunday, 24th of May, 2020, he indicated that the chairman of the association ought to be investigated thoroughly as certain things are not right with his mode of operating the association. “As the Vice-chairman of the association, I have never seen a copy of the association’s accounts statement, whether the accounts have been audited or not, I’m not aware” he emphasized.
According to him. the chairman of the association has clearly deviated from the main idea based on which the association was formed.
“The association was formed so that the grassroots members would be relieved of any unfavourable treatment by our employees and from what was believed as lackadaisical attitude on the part of the already existing unions in relation to handling problems of teachers. However, contradictory to this motive, the chairman of the association has deviated away from the main motive”, he added.
Mr Dzadey who according to his statements as part of those who registered the association has since from that time not been given a copy of the registration documents upon several requests made from 2016 to date. He also added that during the time of registration at the Labour Department, he signed as the General Secretary of the association but the chairman forcibly changed his position to Vice-chairman so that he will not be a signatory to the association’s accounts.
